Soundtracks & Stanzas: Changing Canada's Black Future
Presented by Toronto International Festival of Authors (TIFA) in partnership with JAYU
Whether it be poetry written for the page, the silver screen, the poetry slam or the melody, every poet plays with language to reveal the inexpressible. The Toronto International Festival of Authors and JAYU present the new generation of Canadian poetry which is pushing the possibilities and playing with the rules. Tune into four distinguished Canadian poets who will take us on a journey through the physical, vocal and material elements of their poems. Featuring Jillian Christmas (Vancouver) Tawhida Tanya Evanson (Montreal), Desiree McKenzie (Toronto) and Motion (Toronto). Emcee for the evening is poet Britta B (Toronto).
LOCAL HOST: Britta B.
